    I got bored the other day during the rain delay. Feel free to add anybody I missed, I'm sure I forgot some former commits, as well as guys playing Independent ball.

    Is Sam Travis (Indiana) not on a major league roster somewhere? That guy was a stud the same years as Schwarber.

    Aaron Bummer has been invited to the White Sox's
    spring training, tho I suspect it is a non-roster invite.

    I am SHOCKED Christian Cox is on any roster. Maybe a late bloomer I guess.

    Officially released which is too bad. Hung around for awhile. Maybe he will get a shot with another team.

    I saw Bummer is rated as one of the White Sox top 20 prospects and as a LHP is throwing it in the upper 90s.

    I have to admit, I didn't see Jennings having as good of an MLB career as he has.
